What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent features, good price, minor annoyances I bought the oven when a previous one died. The price was good, it is powerful at 1250 watts, with an inverter, for more even cooking, and fairly large for a countertop microwave oven. On the down side, it is very light, so would slide around a counter. I mounted mine inside a trim kit, preventing that problem. It also has somewhat annoying tones to signal input and that cooking is complete. I would like to just have a single beep or the ability to disable tones. Not a big deal, but would be nice to have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gas dryer I have ever owned !! Bought over 2 years now.. never have had a problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything fits Purchased and installed this dryer and matching washer over 2 years ago. It has been used constantly and it works perfectly. I am selling my home and I am looking to purchase it again. When my son and wife visit, they always brings mountains of laundry. Sometimes I think the washer and dryer are the main reason for their visit. The 7.3 cu capacity is more tan enough room for bath sheets and king size quilts. I couldn't be more pleased with the product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SteamFresh doesn't work as manual & ads state DLGY1202 - manual states "uses the power of steam alone to reduce wrinkles and odor in fabrics." Dryer drips cool water into a medium temp dryer, never reaching a temp to make steam. Clothes are left soaking wet (more wet than after washing) in a puddle of water in the bottom of drum. Clothes are too wet to iron and the dryer would need another cycle to dry the puddle to avoid mold. Without steam, adding cool water to a 134 degree cycle does not remove wrinkles or odors, it only leaves clothes soaking wet. LG ad - The convenience of SteamFresh - Late for the party and no time to iron your favorite outfit?", Clothes are wet, not refreshed and not wrinkle free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gas Dryer Love this LG Gas Dryer I have so many options of heat control. The clothes come out looking great and being dry like they need to be. Love the front panel control. Also the glass front is nice for seeing clothes as they tumble in drying cycle. Very clean style with low noise level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks nice, dries quickly I've had this dryer for over a month now and I love it. It's my first gas dryer (just bought a new house and replaced an existing gas dryer). I was a little hesitant at first, in part because the gas version was higher priced, but it's been amazing. This accompanies my LG washer, also about a month old. The clothes come out barely wet from there, so the dryer doesn't have as much work to do to begin with. But it dries really fast. Like, sometimes I step away and 20 minutes later I hear the end of cycle signal. The first few times I went in skeptical, thinking there was no way my towels were completely dry that quickly. But they were! I received my first gas bill and it was half of what it was in my old house, which didn't have a gas dryer. So the extra money upfront is saving me money on the back end with my utility bills. I like that you can turn off the signal or switch it to low. And its a sweet melody, not an annoying buzzer. I haven't used the steam function yet, but am anxious to try it. I would definitely recommend this dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Newmom14 I bought this dryer along with the matching 4.3 cu. ft. washer in white and I absolutely love it. I mostly use the regular cycle and the towel cycle. My towels always come out completely dry, as do my clothes. If I have one negative thing to say, it's that when I do my sons clothing (he's 7+ months old and I do his clothes separate) they don't always dry completely. I think it has to do with the fact that each drying cycle is "Sensor Dry" and if the machine doesn't sense any moisture it will shorten the drying cycle. His loads aren't very big either so that could also be a factor. I haven't used the "wrinkle free" setting yet, but I can't wait to try it out! Also, I love that the controls are in the front of the dryer (and washer) instead of on the back. Much better to reach for us short people. :-P

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dryer! Everything about this appliance is perfect. I love how it dries your clothes, NOT cook them! And the steam feature is great when I just need to de-wrinkle an item. On top of that, IF a dryer can be pretty, this one is!

I don’t see prongs in back of the dryer

Asked by: CollinsF
Hi CollinsF. Please pardon us, but we are not clear on what you are referring to as "prongs in the back of the dryer" for the LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Front Control Design and SteamFresh™ Cycle, Model # DLGY1201W and will need some clarification. The only things in the back of the dryer are the water inlet valve, the power cord, the gas connection, and the exhaust vent outlet...^IFV

Is there a reset button on dryer Model #DLEY1201

Asked by: Char2665
The LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Front Control Design and SteamFresh™ Cycle, Model # DLEY1201V does not have a reset button on it. A Hard reset can be done by unplugging the dryer and pressing and holding the POWER/START button for 5 seconds then pressing and holding down the PLAY/PAUSE button for 5 seconds. When you plug the unit back in, check to see if the power light and the unit come back on. If the unit does not power on, it will require a repair service...^IFV

Hello, My dryer (DLGY1202V) spins anytime the door is shut. The only time the drum will stop spinning is when the door is open and the door switch is not engaged. This even happens when I have not pressed the power button.  What should I do?

Asked by: Glane
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this Dryer. From the issue described, the unit will likely require service. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair/support-repair-provider-lookup.jsp.

Right side venting for gas dryers?

I want a natural gas dryer with steam but I need a right side vent. The model I wanted will not vent to the right side as a gas dryer. What models will allow me to vent to the right with gas?
Asked by: PeggyL
We appreciate your interest in these gas dryers. All of our gas dryers are designed with the same venting possibilities. The gas valve location prevents the ability for the dryer to vent from the right.

Dryer keeps shutting it's self off and flashing end before the items in it are dry. What should I do?

Asked by: Tammy91
Hi Tammy91. We regret to read about the issues that you are experiencing with your LG 7.3 cu. ft. Ultra Large Capacity Dryer with Front Control Design and SteamFresh™ Cycle, Model # DLGY1202V and apologize for any inconveniences. Typically, when the dryer malfunctions, it will flash an error code on the display that indicates what the problem is. Look to see if there is an error code showing and make note of it as that would help to diagnose the problem. This dryer also has a FlowSense™ Duct Clogging Indicator which indicates the amount of restriction in the drying system and can distinguish between a restricted exhaust duct and a restricted lint filter. This feature can be activated only on the Heavy Duty, Towels, Cotton/Normal, and Time Dry cycles if the temperature is set to medium or high. Your manual has instructions on how to activate this feature. If zero bars show on your display, then your exhaust duct is in good condition and the dryer will perform with high efficiency and the shortest possible drying times. If 2 bars are showing, the exhaust system will need to be examined for lint build up or other restrictions. Those restrictions can result in longer drying times and reduced drying efficiency. The exhaust duct may need to be cleaned or repaired. A four bar display indicates that the exhaust duct is inadequate for normal operation of the dryer. Your dryer also features SmartDiagnosis™ technology which helps to diagnose and solve any problems that you encounter quickly and correctly. With the addition of the SmartDiagnosis™ App, the problems can be diagnosed without having to call an LG representative. The application records and analyzes the special tones emitted by your dryer to instantly provide troubleshooting steps to get the problem fixed. This app is available for iPhone and Android smart phones and if you do not have either, you can then contact LG Customer Service at (800) 243-0000 and a representative will assist you in running the SmartDiagnosis™ test over the phone...^IFV

All of a sudden I smell a burning smell and so do my clothes. I have cleaned all of the vents for lent. It still smells. Why is this happening and how do I fix it?

Asked by: JSY1
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this dryer. Keep in mind that a Gas Dryer will always have some burning smell. Check for lint or dust behind the dryer itself. If this does not resolve the matter, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
